“Comfortable, Accomodating, Central Location, Quiet, No Activity”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 December 2007

My husband and I (late 20s/early 30s) spent December 8-15, 2007 at SMB Resort and Club. We traded a time share week through Interval International for our stay.

There are many pros to SMB resort, however, when they titled the name of this rental property they should have stopped before resort and club. SMB resort is really a condo about 1,000 square feet per unit, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, full kitchen, fantastic screened deck with super comfortable furniture I can't stop thinking about. It is comfortable and met all our needs. We had to find all our own activity, however. At several points I wondered if anyone else worked there except the manager behind the desk. There are no daily activities for adults and at night it is dead quiet. I don't know what would have happened if I needed anything (especially after 7 p.m.).

The location was fantastic. Rent a car and travel around the island - paid $200 US for the week with Thrifty at the airport. Coconut Joe's across the street has delicious food, however like everything on the island it is EXPENSIVE. We used our full kitchen at SMB to cook many of our meals. We paid $47 US for a case of Corona and over $50 each time we ate out including lunch.

We did 2 SCUBA dives with Don Fosters (across the street at Comfort Inn - $250 US for 2 tank dive for two people including BCD rental, etc.) and was amazed with Big Tunnel and disappointed with Fish Reef. The shop was very friendly and safe. Cemetary Beach snorkeling was truly like putting your face in a fully stocked aquarium.

Avoid Georgetown when multiple cruise ships are in and definetly check out Stingray City with Sotos. We drove all around the island in our rental car and ended up at Rum Point one day. This is one of the most beautiful parts of Grand Cayman. It is quiet and relaxing and the beach is beautiful. They do not allow you to bring food onto the beach so we packed a lunch and ate in our car. We did end up spending $20 on 2 drinks that were so-so. The scenery made up for it.

Of all the Carribean islands we've visited, this was by far the cleanest, safest and most American-ized. You will not find impoverished towns around your resort. It is all well kept up and mostly repaired from Hurrican Ivan. I would visit again. Enjoy your stay!

We trade our Interval International timeshare every year for a Caribbean location. This year we traded for a 2-bedroom at the 7-Mile Beach Resort from March 3rd - March 10th and took another couple with us. We are all in our 30s and were not disappointed by Grand Cayman or the 7-Mile Beach Resort.

We had a great time. Condo was large, clean and fully equiped. The front desk staff was helpful and quick to answer our requests. We bought breakfast items at the grocery store, had our coffee and breakfast on the screened in porch over looking the pool and went out for lunch and dinner every night. Incredible restaurants on Grand Cayman, especially The Reef and Deckers. Yum! Do not miss these restaraunts. We ate Waahoo! every night!

Avoid the restaraunt at the Westin. (I think it was called Hemmingway's?) They made us wait a 1/2 hour for a table at 9pm, even though we saw multiple tables open. After a 1/2 hour, they asked us what our room # was at the Westin and we told them we were not guests there. 5 minutes later the hostess informs us that she cannot seat us because we were underdressed. We looked around and saw we were wearing the same type of resort wear the other guests at the restaraunt were wearing! I feel we were discriminated against because we were not Westin guests, which doesn't make sense because the Westin Restaraunt is open to the public - not just Westin guests. This really aggravated us!

Snorkeling was fantastic at Cemetary Beach. Stingray City is a do not miss. We booked our excursions through the activity desk at 7-Mile Beach Resort. (Wish we booked outside the resort just for Stingray City because we found out later that another company provided jet-ski tours to Stingray City. ) Took a sunset rum cruise on the Jolly Roger - great time! We rented a car one day and scooters another couple days to get around and go shopping in Georgetown. Very fun! Other days, we just took the local buses to get from point A to point B.

Coconut Joe's across from the resort is a nice place for a quick bite. Unfortunately, 7-Mile Beach Resort does not have an on-site restaraunt or bar. It was destroyed during Hurricane Ivan and hasn't been restored yet. So we had to go elsewhere.

It's about a block walk to 7-Mile Beach. We went for walks along the beach every night before dinner. Wonderful beach to lay out on in the daytime and catch sunsets at night. Great location, great resort overall! Hopefully, they'll rebuilt the bar/snack bar soon.

We would definitely go back!

The 7 Mile Beach Resort was absolutely fabulous! We traded our time share to stay at this resort. The staff at this resort was fantastic and went above & beyond the call of duty. Miriam in the office was kind enough to make restaurant reservations at the Grand Old House for us and also confirmed our Pirate Cruise aboard the Jolly Roger. She was incredibly helpful. Captain Andy, Mick & Vangie made our trip to Stingray City wonderful. Andy let my son help drive the boat and Mick dubbed my son "Captain ZigZag" due to his knack of steering (or lack there of). Every employee of the resort that we came in contact with was extremely nice and helpful. We loved being able to check out movies in the office. The pool was a bit cold for me, but my husband & son enjoyed it immensely. The hot tub was great. The beach was a short walk away and a bit small, but very nice. The rooms were incredible! All new appliances in the kitchen, the two bedrooms were very nicely decorated, as was the living & dining areas. The bathrooms were nice too. We enjoyed eating breakfast on the screened in balcony. Everything was great.

We stocked up on groceries at Fosters Food Fair, but later checked out Kirk's Market as well. Both have a good selection of foods.

If you are looking to try some great local restaurants, I'd highly recommend "Over the Edge" and "Heritage Kitchen." Over the Edge is near Rum Point, which also is a must see. The food was so good we ate there twice. We tried Turtle Steak, Grilled Wahoo, Conch Steak & Conch Fritters. All were really tasty. Heritage Kitchen is a small building behind the gas station at the four way stop. I believe it is only open on Thursday & Friday evenings. The have Fish Tea (a fish soup) and excellent steamed fish (plus other items). Very good.

For Beaches, our favorite spots were Rum Point, Smith's Cove and 7 Mile beach. The spot in front of Calico Jack's was great too. They also have the best Pina Colada's.

Stingray City was great, and the Pirate Cruise was a lot of fun. My son, who is 5, absolutely loved it. Well worth the money. We also spent a day at the East End and swam there and visited Pedro St James (great historical site) and Queen Elizabeth's Botanical Park, where we saw a huge blue iguana in the wild. If you like snorkeling, it doesn't get much better than Soto's Reef aka Cheeseburger Reef (due to it's proximity to Burger King). It's like swimming in an aquarium.

An absolutely fantastic trip and I'm ready to go back now!

Again, thanks to the 7 Mile Beach Resort & her staff for helping to make our vacation absolutely fabulous!

Just home from a week stay at 7 Mile Beach Club on Grand Cayman Island.
Arrived late afternoon 10/20, rented car from Hertz then off go grocery. Found our resort quite well. Note that check-in office is on second floor unit 9.
Room was amazing, 1 bedroom with king bed and whirlpool tub and TV. Second bedroom had 2 large beds and own bathroom.
Kitchen was fully equipped range, frig, microwave, blender, toaster and all dishes and utensils. Full size appliances not small ones. Table seats 6 and breakfast bar. Large living area with screened porch. Pool with waterfall was great. Safe in room, DVD and movies can be checked out in office. WIFI or DSL in room no charge. Towel exchange and linen on Wednesday and Saturday I believe.
Staff at the resort were outstanding! !!
If you dive, stop by and say hi to Steve and Elton, visit Turtle farm and definately Eden Rock, Devils Grotto. There are 2 dive shops close by that are awesome. Full line of equipment supplies etc.
Rum point is a do not miss. excelent for snorkeling and hanging out.
Turtle farm is also a must do as is Stingray City
If shopping is your bag go to Georgetown. Check calendar and stay away when cruise ships are in town, really crowded.
We ate at Coconut Joes right across street, good food. Bring insect spray, mosquitos are hungry. And, thre are live chickens roaming about, yes I said live chickens but they dont bother you.
We also at at Eats which was also good.
Fast food: Burger King, Wendy's KFC, Subway.
A week on the Island requires a car!!!! And well worth the $300 we spent.
Beach, is not far but the public beach is the best and you can access it very easily.
hints: resorts must charge a $10 per day resort fee, we paid for electricity which ended up being $45 for the week. Just use sense like you were at home, turn off lights etc.
Gas Grills are provided poolisde to cook on, they are HOT.

If you have the opportunity to stay at 7 Mile Beach Club you will not be disappointed. I have been to many resorts and this one is great, small and personable but not pushy towards the guests.

Any questions, feel free to email.

We have stayed at the Seven Mile Beach Resort and Club in Grand Cayman. The Staff is excellent - Vangie in the office, Steve and Elton in the dive shop. All of the suites are 2 BR condos with full kitchen and screened in porch. Rooms are recently renovated (after hurricane Ivan), and extremely clean. Pool and hot tub are great. Excellent location - short walk to 7 mile beach and all of the restaurants. The resort is in the process of renovating the office and outside bar and tennis courts-- still damaged from the hurricane---however these additional items were not missed - because each 2 BR has a full kitchen and there are many other resorts nearby if you wanted to go out for a drink. SMB is across the street from the Comfort suites and the Marriott beach resort. The SMB resort is quiet at night and very relaxing--- very low key. The resort offers trips to stingray city, diving, etc. We had an Excellent time here and would return and stay again at this resort.

We have just returned from a fabulous vacation. The accomodation was excellent. The only comment I have is that the building housing the bar was damaged during Hurrican Ivan and has not been repaired so is an eye sore. The resort is in the busier part of seven mile beach so suffers from some traffic noise - whether this will bother you will depend on how use to traffic you are. The resort is one resort away from the beach a five minute walk. There is construction going on next to the resort. (virtually on the beach). We complemented our stay with a few days a Turtles Nest Inn - which I would recommend.
Seven Mile resort was a great base - but if you want a relaxing place to lounge by the pool for a prolonged period you should probably choose another resort.

Last year we bought a second-hand timeshare at the Seven-Mile Beach Resort. We were there in December and loved the resort so much we invited my husband's sister and her family to join us on vacation in August 2007. We contacted the resort directly and rented two units. Each has 2 bedroom/2 bath and a kitchen.

The two bedroom units are wonderful if travelling with kids. There are two televisions... one in the master bedroom and one in the living room. The sofa in the living room is a pull-out bed if you need more sleeping accomodations.

The beach is just a short walk- without crossing any streets. Great snorkelling.

We bought some groceries at the local market. Need to know- the grocery stores are closed on Sunday.

Coconut Joe's Restaurant is just across the street... Great Food! I had their ribs the last night. YUMMY!
